X for Teachers,” the program runs through December 31, 2002. Qualifying teachers will receive Mac OS X v10.2 Jaguar, Mac OS 9 for Classic support and a Getting Started with Mac OS X Training CD — Apple will also pay for shipping, handling and postage.
“Getting Jaguar and a training CD for free makes it easy for teachers to move to Mac OS X, so they can spend more time using technology in the classroom and less time making it all work,” said John Couch, Apple’s vice president of Education. “Apple has delivered innovative products to teachers and schools for over 25 years, and Mac OS X is our best ever.”
Last month MacCentral revealed Apple’s education market share had fallen to less than half of its main competitor, Dell Computer Corp. Dell’s education market share at the end of the last quarter was 34.9 percent, while Apple’s was 15.2 percent, according to market research firm IDC.
